Be Active, Be Sporty!

Project Summary: 

The project was addressed to every student in our school.  The goal of the project was to convince young people to change their perspective regarding their lifestyle, transforming it into a lifestyle that is healthier and more active.

Justification: 

We believed that our colleagues had a bad association with sports and exercise.  We wanted to change this perspective to help them become healthier and more active.

Activities: 

For activities, members of the club organized a meeting with the school medic and with 5 well-known athletes from the area in order to tell students about the importance of exercise and sports in a healthy lifestyle.  Then we organized multiple fun sports competitions (sack races, different relays, etc.), as well as 5 flash mobs in both the school and the city, where many different students from the school participated.  We started a dance club in the school for IMPACT members and others.  Throughout the whole project we promoted our activities well, having numerous appearances online, on the radio, and on television.

Beneficiaries: 

Our project beneficiaries were students from the C.D. Loga National High School in Caransebeș.

Project results: 

People really understood the message we were trying to send through this project.  Youth began to sign up for the climbing club, track & field, and so on because of the encouragement to be athletic and the inspiration of our project.  The flash mobs also brought in many more classmates from our school.  Many different students from the school participated.  We started a dance club in the school for IMPACT members and others.  As a whole, the project was received very warmly by community members, with IMPACT members being appreciated for their initiative.

Sponsors and donors:
